House Renovation and Conversions
A house renovation will bring the property up to date adopting current standards, at the same tim make safe a property that has fallen into disrepair. It is generally necessary to involve local authorities. These are often large and complex projects.
The inside of a property will be stripped in total or part, then rebuilt either to a totally different design, or to reflect the original property. The status of the property may dictate what can and cannot be done.
The outside of the property may require maintenance for example new windows, resetting stone and brickwork, fixing or re-roofing.

Similar to renovations in that the work is about changing an existing property. Conversions are more common with newer properties to change the way the property is used.
Converting two rooms into a through room can be a way to make a house feel larger.
Garage conversions change a garage to an internal extra room, ideal for an elderly relative or a “snug”.
